Video Game Forum NeoGAF Hacked, User Passwords Reset


Recommended Posts


NeoGAF, a popular video game forum that has over 114,000 members, has been hacked. The site’s administrators have initialized a password reset procedure for all users since the attackers might have stolen some information.

“We've just had an admin account compromised briefly by an automated attack. The hole was immediately plugged, but we're forcing a site-wide password reset for the safety of the members since it's possible they obtained some data,” Tyler Malka, the owner of NeoGAF, stated.

“If you used the same password for other sites, be sure to update any relevant accounts elsewhere as well, and be especially careful with your email accounts. Sorry for the trouble,” they added.

Users who need to change the email address because the old one no longer works are advised to change it from their control panel.
